    I am a teenager and this stuff is amazing. Your face will get worse after using it for couple weeks but your dermatologist should tell you that. Also acne takes a long time to get rid of. I have been using this for about roughly 3-4 months and it's been working great. No more giant red pimples that used to be flaring up my skin.
